A new focus for us this year is Millennials—the future C-Suite and business leaders. To date, most research on Millennials has been on their social media habits and attitudes, but Catalyst is embarking on a study that will include career and workplace topics.

Read on to find out more about this study and how you can participate—even if you’re not a Millennial. And take a look at our new global Catalyst Census, the 2015 Catalyst Awards Conference and Dinner, and more.
Doing Things Differently: 2014 Catalyst Census
Today we released our revamped 2014 Catalyst Census: Women Board Directors, which for the first time provides data on multiple global regions, with measurements from the United States, Canada, Europe, and Asia-Pacific. See how women fare in your region and watch our video
Doing Different Things: Millennial Research Study
Catalyst, in partnership with Levo League, is embarking on new cutting-edge research that will debunk common myths about Millennials. Our survey of Millennials will cover topics including organizational commitment, career and life aspirations, and attitudes about flexible work arrangements. In addition, Millennial participants will be able to engage with fellow survey participants about the results through online community discussions. Want to participate? Take the survey now, and share it with any Millennials you know.
Making Change Through Technology: The Catalyst App
In 2015 we will unveil the new Catalyst app, a one-stop shop for both Catalyst member-only and public research as digestible, interactive content. Stay tuned for more details. In the meantime download all of our apps: Creating Inclusive Leadership, Gender Diversity on Corporate Boards and High Potentials in the Pipeline.
